About this recipe:Calling all garlic lovers! The beloved bulb is definitely the X factor in this pasta show! Fried in olive oil so that it slightly caramelises, sweetens and browns, tossed with pasta and the aromatic garlic-infused cooking oil and topped with Parmesan cheese. Divinely simple, and will definitely keep the vampires away!

Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to the boil. Add pasta and cook for 8 to 10 minutes or until al dente; drain.
Heat olive oil in a saucepan over medium heat until a piece of garlic dropped into the oil slowly bubbles. Add the garlic, and cook and stir until golden brown, 5 to 7 minutes. Remove garlic from the oil with a slotted spoon and set aside; reserve oil.
To serve, place the pasta onto individual serving dishes and sprinkle with fried garlic. Drizzle with a little of the frying oil and sprinkle with Parmesan cheese. Reserve remaining garlic-flavoured oil for another use.
